Today I pushed the john deere into the garage so my son and I can start the restoration this week. We are doing it as a father son project. I have some time off work this week so I hope to get it torn down this weekend. Here is a picture of it next to the mf-12h.

I plan on posting the progress here. Hopefully I will be better at taking pictures along the way them I have in the past with restoration projects. Also I'm not sure how fast the progress will be. I really want to work on it with my son. But I think that will make the progress slower.

112 right?  I finally picked up the 110 but it is on hold until I have a garage to work in.  Looking forward to the project!

I found some cracks in the transmission case. It looks like I'm going to have to take the transmission apart and try and weld it up. I can't say I'm looking forward to that. Hopefully I can get it back together. Did anyone know if it's cast iron out cast steel?

You can buy the whole thing for for about 100 dollars. Finding one close to you is the trick. Shipping could be high. Oh, and I am pretty sure it cast iron. I would replace it if it was mine, especially if I was going to plow with it.

 

Edit: Just checked auction site there were just the split cases for a low as $30.

I have an extra case here... shipping would likely be steep.

Are you referring to e-bay?

Does anyone know if this case is the same?  It's off a 110.  It says Peerless 2300.  But I think those where 3 speeds right?
